Does anybody know which specific SHA algorithm is used for the "Store
password in high secure SHA format" ?

I am asking in light of the recent discovery of a slight vulnerability in
the the SHA1 encryption algorithm.

It uses SHA-1. But don't worry, to find a collision in SHA is required 2^68 hash operations.
Moreover, nobody can break your passwords if the users configuration file hasn't been stolen from your server. If someone gains access to your server, he can do much worse things than decrypt your password.
